daniell review 5 star aFantastic start to this serial!! If you are a fan of Selena Laurence, this is not one to miss!

Pax is the son of Walsh and Tammy from the Lush series. Although he has grown up in luxury and the son of a well-known musician, Pax is determined to make it in the music industry on his own. He moves to a small town in Alabama and picks up several gigs and things are really looking up for the budding musician.

Carly is an 18-year-old college student struggling to come to terms with the recent death of her father.  Her father was in trouble with a loan shark right before his death and now they are looking at Carly for payment. One of the loan shark’s thugs tries to grab her up at the beach but a stranger comes to her rescue. 

After coming to this young woman’s rescue, Pax wants to know more about this mysterious, beautiful girl. Carly doesn’t want to involve anyone else in her drama, so she refuses to give Pax her number.  Will Pax be able to find her again? Will Carly be able to get out of the predicament she has found herself in?

I’ve only read one other serial and have never been much of a fan but this one is off to an amazing start!! I am very intrigued as to what will happen next. Selena Laurence is such a talented author and creates such strong characters that you can’t help but love. I’m waiting on pins and needles for the next installment!!!

christie review 5 star aTwo words: LOVED IT!!!! Pax is the son of the legendary Lush rock star, Walsh. He leaves his parents in Oregon and moves to a small town in Alabama to make it on his own, so no one knows who his famous father is. One day while on the beach, the beautiful, Carly, enters his life in a most unforgettable way. He rescues her from being kidnapped after hearing her scream and seeing her struggling with a thug. After she leaves safely with her roommate, he regrets not knowing more about her. He can’t seem to forget her, but fortunately she soon meets her again. Each time seems to involve her fighting off the same man. However, her predicament doesn’t scare Pax off. He wants to save her! But, their road to romance will be fraught with danger!

I’m not a huge fan of serials, but I decided to give this one a try because I love ANYTHING by Selena Laurence. I am so glad I downloaded it; it was fantastic! It was short but packed with so much substance and suspense. It didn’t hurt that the guys from Lush are mentioned in it either…I mean Pax is Walsh’s son, and I love Walsh! I am anxiously awaiting the next installment.
